Press Release 08-156 - Video
George Huber describes a new method of rapidly turning plant, possibly paper, waste into gasoline.

George Huber, a chemical engineering professor from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, has developed one of the most efficient methods for turning wood chips--or any other plant waste, such as corn husks or even waste paper--into critical gasoline components. In this video, he describes his process and shows a simple model of the catalyst that drives it.
